Children are less inquisitive and ask fewer questions because their minds have been dulled by iPads before they even enter primary school, according to the head of Britain’s biggest head teachers’ association.
Andrew Mellor, the president of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), said children were coming into school as passive rather than active learners because parents were using iPads as “soothers” to keep them quiet.
The surrounding world and technology have changed. People now absorb and access information in different ways.
But the teachers are insisting we must all use the old ways? How Tory!
